Title: Getting Global: The Hidden Power of Local Leadership
Date of publication: 2014
Description/subject: "...Since 1990, city and regional leaders have come together through organizations like ICLEI—Local Governments for Sustainability to serve as counterparts to national governments and the United Nations. As many local governments become concerned about the increasingly discussed failure of global governance, leaders across cities and towns are looking for opportunities to strengthen their impact. “To the extent that national interests have allowed, UN organizations and the global processes under their influence have been supportive of this newly born movement in civil society,” says Zimmerman. “Local actors…have mirrored global efforts at nearly every stage and have often stimulated the debate among nations with their own commitments.”..."

Title: The Asia LEDS Partnership
Description/subject: "...Low emission development strategies (LEDS) are national-level, country-led, and country-specific strategic plans to promote economic growth while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (in absolute and/or relative terms) over the long term without causing trade-offs with other environmental pressures. LEDS carries the same meaning as low carbon development strategies, low emission climate resilient development strategies, and green growth strategies. While LEDS focus on reducing GHG emissions, due diligence should be taken to ensure that LEDS do not cause unintended environmental pressures... The Asia LEDS Partnership vision is an Asia and Pacific region with robust economic progress and low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with countries adopting and implementing LEDS and green growth practices. The Asia LEDS Partnership goal is to advance the development of national-level and country-led strategic plans to promote economic growth while reducing greenhouse (GHG) emissions—without causing trade-offs to other environmental pressures—in the Asia region...."

Title: Karen State Education Assistance Group
Description/subject: "The Karen State Education Assistance Group supports the 3,981 teachers and 83,920 students working and studying in the 1,049 Karen primary and secondary schools throughout Karen State, Burma. Schools have historically been organised and supported by local communities themselves under the administrative supervision of the Karen Education Department. However, acute poverty, lack of food, poor health and displacement due to Burmese military aggression has meant that school running costs have become too great a burden on communities and parents. Teachers explain that communities' inability to provide them foods or basic subsidies is the main reason for attrition - 37% of teachers annually in 2002 but the rate has dropped significantly since the beginning of education assistance, to 17% this year. As such, the central problem being addressed by this project is the lack of teacher subsidies, school and student materials and basic student health provisions and how this negatively affects primary and secondary education throughout Karen State, Burma. Planet Wheeler Foundation supports KSEAG in their education assistance program for the Karen people."

Title: Myanmar’s Investment Treaties: A review of legal issues in light of recent trends
Date of publication: June 2014
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "This paper reviews Myanmar’s existing investment treaties and examines the legal implications of key terms contained in them. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of Myanmar’s current investment treaty context, which can inform a way forward for possible reform and contribute to a deeper understanding of the implications of potential future treaties. This paper focuses on key provisions that have proven important in other countries’ experience with investment treaties over the past decade. 1 The main findings of this paper are as follows: 1. Myanmar has seven investment treaties in force, plus an eighth treaty—the Myanmar–Japan bilateral investment treaty (BIT)—that may soon enter into force. 2. Myanmar’s investment treaties cover the investment relationship between Myanmar and 15 other countries. These 15 countries are all located in East, South-East and South Asia and in Oceania (Australia and New Zealand). 3. Four of Myanmar’s investment treaties, which cover Myanmar’s investment relationship with 13 different countries, were negotiated either with or through ASEAN. 4. Myanmar’s investment treaties that were negotiated with or through ASEAN show some degree of consistency, although important differences between these four treaties remain. In contrast, there is a very high degree of variation between Myanmar’s ASEAN investment treaties and Myanmar’s BITs, both in the types of provisions included in different treaties and in the drafting of provisions common to several treaties. 5. These variations have significant legal implications for the nature and extent of Myanmar’s obligations under different treaties. They also make the government’s task of complying with Myanmar’s existing investment treaties more complex. 6. Many of Myanmar’s investment treaties contain most-favoured nation (MFN) clauses. The effect of these provisions is that any benefit extended to foreign investors from one country under one investment treaty may need to be extended to foreign investors covered by Myanmar’s other investment treaties. As a result, Myanmar may be required to grant a combination of benefits to foreign investors that is more generous than that provided by any one of Myanmar’s investment treaties, considered individually. 7. Aside from the Myanmar–Philippines BIT, all of Myanmar’s investment treaties allow foreign investors to bring claims under the treaty directly to investor–state arbitration. In such disputes, an arbitral tribunal will decide if the state in which the investment is located has breached the treaty. If the investor’s claim is successful, the tribunal will make a binding, monetary award against the state. Because Myanmar’s investment treaties are enforceable through investor–state arbitration, questions relating to the extent of Myanmar’s obligations under different treaties have important practical implications"

Title: The Myanmar–Japan Bilateral Investment Treaty
Date of publication: 12 September 2014
Description/subject: "...This note examines some of the key legal and policy implications of the Myanmar–Japan Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT). This treaty was signed on December 15, 2013 but, at the time of writing, does not appear to have entered into force. Although Myanmar is already a party to a handful of bilateral and multilateral investment treaties, the Myanmar–Japan BIT is particularly significant for two reasons. The first is that it is the first investment treaty to be negotiated and signed by the transitional government that took power in 2011. As such, it provides insights into how the current Government might approach other investment treaty negotiations over the coming years. The second reason is that the Myanmar–Japan BIT differs significantly from recent ASEAN investment treaty practice (to which Myanmar is a party). For one, the investment protection provisions of the Myanmar–Japan BIT use older- style language, thereby leaving leeway for investment tribunals to limit Myanmar’s policy space in a manner that would not be possible under the ASEAN investment treaties. Myanmar also appears to provide more extensive pre-establishment rights to Japan than it provides to ASEAN member states under the ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement (ASEAN CIA), and it could be argued that the rights granted to Japanese investors must now also be extended to investors of the other nine ASEAN states..."

Description/subject: "The International Institute for Sustainable Development is a Canadian-based, international public policy research institute for sustainable development. Since it was first articulated in the Brundtland Commission’s Our Common Future in 1987, sustainable development has never been superseded by a more compelling or universally-acceptable expression of humanity’s shared goals. At its simplest level, any form of development that is not sustainable contains the seeds of its own destruction. For development to be sustainable, it must not only generate wealth: it must also advance social justice, reduce and eventually eliminate poverty, and remain within the limits imposed by ecosystem and resource resilience..."

Title: Briefing: Myanmar’s “Rohingya” - what’s in a name?
Date of publication: 15 September 2014
Description/subject: "Already widely reduced to statelessness and in many cases forced into camps for displaced people, an 800,000-strong population of Muslims in western Myanmar now faces increasing efforts to eradicate the very word they use to identify themselves as a group. Under pressure from Myanmar’s nominally-civilian government, the international community sometimes appears complicit in the airbrushing of “Rohingya” from official discourse. In this briefing, IRIN breaks down some of the questions about a group of people that has been called one of the most persecuted minorities in the world.

Title: Are Myanmar's reforms backsliding?
Date of publication: 19 September 2014
Description/subject: "Critics say the government is going full-steam ahead on economic recovery at the expense of human rights...The 11-point plan set out by Myanmar President Thein Sein in 2012, called for the release of some 2,500 political prisoners, wrongfully jailed in the 60 years of authoritarian rule, by the end of 2013. It would also work towards achieving a ceasefire with ethnic groups embroiled in war with the government for more than half a century by January 2013, allow international humanitarian aid to reach conflict-affected areas and allow blacklisted people such as journalists and critics to freely enter and leave the country. Despite an initial effort that saw some of these undertakings partially realised when the reformist government took power in 2011, the majority of reforms promised by the Thein Sein government have been left largely unfulfilled..."

Title: Kyaukphyu SEZ ‘Key’ to China Business Corridor, But Doubts Remain
Date of publication: 19 September 2014
Description/subject: "Kyaukphyu port on Burma’s western coast could play a key role in a Beijing-led economic corridor plan linking neighbors India, Bangladesh and China. But economists and foreign policy analysts are divided over whether the Naypyidaw government’s ambitions for a special economic zone (SEZ) around Kyaukphyu in Arakan State are viable. The so-called BCIM Corridor, for Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar, was a key issue of discussion by China’s President Xi Jinping this week on a rare visit to India by a Chinese head of state. A pivotal spot along the corridor would be Mandalay, linking China’s Yunnan province capital Kunming with northeast India and on into Bangladesh. But observers see the BCIM proposal as also instrumental in giving China access to the Indian Ocean. The BCIM is a grand plan for Beijing to “gain access to multiple coastal zones that are considered crucial for the next-generation Chinese economy,” commented India’s Telegraph business newspaper. Within Burma this points to Kyaukphyu for the Chinese, who have already built a crude oil transshipment terminal there as well as controversial oil and gas pipelines that start at Kyaukphyu and run the length of Burma into Yunnan... However, Chinese plans for a railway linking Yunnan with Kyaukphyu have soured amid a cooling relationship between Naypyidaw and Beijing..."

Title: Should we build more large dams? The actual costs of hydropower megaproject development
Date of publication: 10 March 2014
Description/subject: Abstract: "A brisk building boom of hydropower mega-dams is underway from China to Brazil. Whether benefits of new dams will outweigh costs remains unresolved despite contentious debates. We investigate this question with the “outside view” or “reference class forecasting” based on literature on decision-making under uncertainty in psychology. We find overwhelming evidence that budgets are systematically biased below actual costs of large hydropower dams—excluding inflation, substantial debt servicing, environmental, and social costs. Using the largest and most reliable reference data of its kind and multilevel statistical techniques applied to large dams for the first time, we were successful in fitting parsimonious models to predict cost and schedule overruns. The outside view suggests that in most countries large hydropower dams will be too costly in absolute terms and take too long to build to deliver a positive risk- adjusted return unless suitable risk management measures outlined in this paper can be affordably provided. Policymakers, particularly in developing countries, are advised to prefer agile energy alternatives that can be built over shorter time horizons to energy megaprojects"....Keywords: Large hydropower dams, Schedule and cost estimates, Cost–benefit forecasting, Reference class forecasting, Outside view."

Title: WMO GREENHOUSE GAS BULLETIN (September 2014)
Date of publication: 09 September 2014
Description/subject: The State of Greenhouse Gases in the Atmosphere....."...the U.N.’s weather outfit, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), issued its annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin. It offered a shocking climate-change update: the concentrations of long-lasting greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere (carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide) rose at a “record-shattering pace” from 2012 to 2013, including the largest increase in CO2 in 30 years -- and there was a nasty twist to this news that made it even grimmer. While such increases reflected the fact that we continue to extract and burn fossil fuels at staggering rates, something else seems to be happening as well. Both the oceans and terrestrial plant life act as carbon sinks; that is, they absorb significant amounts of the carbon dioxide we release and store it away. Unfortunately, both may be reaching limits of some sort and seem to be absorbing less. This is genuinely bad news if you’re thinking about the future warming of the planet..." (Tom Dispatch.com)

Unfortunately, both may be reaching limits of some sort and seem to be absorbing less. This is genuinely bad news if you’re thinking about the future warming of the planet. (As it happens, in the same period, according to the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, parts of the American public stopped absorbing information in no less striking fashion: the number of those who believe that global warming isn’t happening rose 7% to 23%.)..."
